All my Sons

All my Sons

All my sons is a play about two families. It takes place in the Keller's house. Kate, Joe's wife believes that Larry, their missing son will return from the war soon, but the other members of the family doesn't. Annie comes and visits the Kellers and Chris, their son. Chris and Ann are in love and they want to marry. Kate is against this marriage, because Chris was Larry's girl.

Ann's father, Steve is in jail, because a few years ago, he was Joe's partner in a fabric, which produced cylinder heads for aeroplanes. One day, 21 of the cylinder heads were cracked. On the next day, Joe had a flu and didn't come to work, but he called Steve and told him to send the cracked heads away. Steve did so and the P-40s, the planes in which the cracked heads were put, crashed down. Afterwards Joe denied the phone call and accused Steve for sending them away. Steve went to jail and Joe was set free and became a respectable businessman, again. Chris, his son didn't know about it.    

George, Steve's son called and announced his visit. He became a layer. Joe got nervous and feared that George comes to find something out.

When George comes, Kate tells him that Joe has never been ill, but Joe said that he got ill, the day Steve sent the heads away. In the last minute Joe and Kate could talk their way out, but George got more and more distrustful.

Chris found out that his father was guilty for sending the cracked heads away and got furious. Ann also found out and wanted Kate to tell Chris that Larry is dead and that she knows it. Kate refused and so Ann showed her a letter from Larry, who sent it to her the day he died. The letter said that Larry got a paper from the States in which stood that case about Steve and Joe. It also said that, if  Joe would have been their, he would have pulled a bullet into his head. After reading the letter, Joe went into the house and killed himself.
